Visit Branson Missouri

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring of 2008, my co-teacher and friend, Excem McCasland and her husband, Scott, invited Doods, I and several co-teachers to spend the spring break with them at Branson, Missouri. My co-teachers and the McCaslands are from Houston like us. Before exploring Branson with us, the McCaslands stopped by for some days at their friends' house. After which they have gone to Branson where they waited for us. They got there some days ahead of us and stayed at Hilton Branson Convention Center. They enjoyed the place tremendously because of its friendly people and clean surrounding. The ambiance was also to boast. The place offers good deals and a number of amenities to enjoy. It has amazing packages that can cater for both big and small groups.

It was our first time to visit Branson, so we made sure we maximize our five-day stay. It was not difficult to know what places and attractions to visit. It's readily available online.

Goofing with friends

The Titanic museum is a two-story building that is unlike it's traveling counterparts. It towers above Country Highway 76 in it's massive 100 feet height. Holds 400 rare artifacts in twenty galleries. It gives a titanic-at-sea effect because it is anchored on water. We missed Titanic's maiden voyage, but was fortunate to discover her through this wonderful museum in Missouri.

Another thing that we greatly enjoyed in Branson is the quack-tastic adventure aboard the amphibious vehicle, a WWII replica DUCW. Ride the Duck is a tour that combines music with historical accounts. We got to tour the Ozarks and afterward enjoyed the splash as we cruised the lake. Our friend, Excem, also got to drive the duck. how cool is that!

One of the scenic spots is the Table Rock lake, a man made reservoir impounded by Table Rock Dam. Commercial marinas populate the lake. The Department of natural resources operates a fish hatchery downstream from the dam. The fish in the hatchery is used to stock Lake Tnaycomo.

Our five days went by too fast. There's still so much we haven't seen and explored. We will definitely back. My sister and her family have moved here in America. We are excited to show them around. We checked out Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, it has accommodation for big groups like us. It's located at the heart of downtown Branson. How cool is that!
